Extension and promotion of ecologically-based rodent management for diversified rice systems in Bangladesh. Final Technical Report.
This research project was based on addressing some of the constraints identified through previously funded DFID research (Crop Protection Programme: R8184 / ZA0503) which showed that rodents could be successfully and sustainably managed by rural communities in a cost-beneficial manner. Good rodent management does not need to be expensive, but it is knowledge intensive. Hence, major constraints related to widely reducing the impact of rodents on people’s livelihoods include the methods whereby knowledge is disseminated and people’s access to appropriate knowledge resources.
